    Re: Iran plots to kill Saudi Ambassador on U.S soil

    In no other country but the US would this sort of twaddle get to a courtroom. It's a pro-active sting.

    You start with mass surveillance of the country, requests to all honest citizens to phone in their concerns about swarthy foreigners mouthing off and the like.

    When convenient, scan your report database ticking "Iran", "diplomat", "kill", and quite likely "bloody Israel" and "about time someone went and".

    Then you send in your sting team. They befriend and drop sentences like "you're goldarn tooting" (a phrase which appears to carry none of the lavatorial humor the Brits would extract from it). Three nods of the head and you're booked for a court appearance. If you mention it on the phone to your Uncle Sayeed next time you ring home, that makes it an official Tehran-inspired assassination plot on US territory.

    No doubt the FBI will keep doing this until Armageddon eventuates - one of their Faith-based policy goals, so it's said. Justice? I think not. The Theatre of the Absurd would be a closer description.

    The lie is turning "it'd be good if" into "your honor, the defendants were planning to", by waving a magic wand of "I can supply you with" and getting a bemused agreement to go ahead. None of these pro-active sting plots would exist at all without the FBI fairy godmother offering to overcome the impossibilities which prevent the marks from ever going past their genuine mouthing off stage.

    Re: Iran plots to kill Saudi Ambassador on U.S soil

    Yeah, I am puzzled a bit by this, too.
    This guy with Dual citizenship goes to Mexico to look for a hit man to off a saudi official, and of course he meets up with the FBI pretending to be Mexican, and comes up with a plan to whack the Saudi.
    Then, when he gets caught, he points the finger at some other guy who is in Iran, who supposedly is a member of the Iranian super military OPs, (sorta like US seals, or the A-Team, or whatever)
    This guy is obviously NOT supebad military guy, or he wouldn't have flipped so fast.

    So, what's the deal? An excuse to have the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan make a detour on their way home?

    Pretty lame, if you ask me.

    Re: Iran plots to kill Saudi Ambassador on U.S soil

    Last night I heard on TV the taped recording of the conversation between the FBI undercover agent and the alleged assassin.

    The hit was apparently planned at a resturant and the FBI agent said words to the effect of... 'Hang on but there will be 100 or so people In there, possibly US politicians also.'
    The reply was ' No problem... blow It up'.

    Had It have gone ahead, who knows how many lives would have been lost ?

    Fortunately it could never have gone ahead, the FBI being the only competent party.

    In America, any Walter Mitty now faces life imprisonment if the authorities take note of his fantasies. Leaving him to dream endangers nobody but they'd rather stoke fear among the population at large.

    Anyone who didn't recognize this as a setup upon reading the first headline should be reassessing their ability to think for themselves.

    The first thought that popped into my head when this came over the wire was 'the hikers'. Would this have been news if they were still being held?
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.
